Full Text

1 I long to know Thee better,
To understand Thy will,
That I may loose the fetter,
That keeps me from Thee still.

Chorus:
I long to know Thee better,
To understand Thy will,
My Savior and my helper,
Thy love in me fulfil.

2 O Savior, draw me nearer,
There's safety at Thy side.
And there Thy love is dearer,
Than all the world beside. [Chorus]

3 With Thee the desert dreary
Is robbed of all its gloom,
The way so long and weary
Like summer gardens bloom. [Chorus]
